Keep Up to Date with the Latest Programming News with Ken

There are plenty of viable options for keeping up to date with the latest happenings in your sphere of interests, such as Feedly, Pulse, Rockmelt and the now decommissioned and sorely missed Google Reader. For programmers and developers out there, they may serve the purpose of keeping you up to date with the latest development news, serving up the newest tutorials on Javascript and Python, or drawing inspiration for your next app or site design.

For such users, XDA Forum Member mlakkadshaw may have developed just the app for you. Ken is a free app that serves as a news platform delivering the most recent news, reports, tutorials and op-eds from every corner of the Interwebs. Articles are drawn and categorized into predetermined interests, which can be navigated with simple horizontal swipes. Interests include:

  • Android
  • Javascript
  • Python
  • PHP
  • Ruby
  • Java
  • UI for mobiles and sites

Articles that have caught your attention can either be viewed in your web browser or natively on Ken. A zoom function is available, and if you reckon your friends would be interested in certain articles you’ve come across, the app also allows you to share articles on various social networking sites and other platforms.

Mlakkadshaw is accepting suggestions for sites to be included in Ken, and all credit for the articles go to their respective site and  author. Light in size, simple in design, and great in practicality, Ken may be an app you’d like to check out. If this is so, you can find more information and download in the original thread.
